GSPCA was overwhelmed with inquires at the 2013 Careers Show

Submitted by GSPCA on 10:21, 22nd Mar, 2013 | 0

Wednesday evening and yesterday the GSPCA took a stall to the Careers Show 2013 for the first time and were overwhelmed by inquiries.

Although the Shelter rarely has vacancies the GSPCA are always looking for volunteers to help in a variety of areas and this was of a huge interest to many of the visitors at the Careers Show.

For many of the Year 9 students it is the first time they are able to help at the Shelter, as to become a volunteer the minimum age is 14 years.

This meant that hoards of Year 9's swamped the GSPCA stand to find out how they could help.

Blizzard conditions highlight concerns for tethered Guernsey cattle

Submitted by GSPCA on 13:13, 20th Mar, 2013 | 0

Last week the GSPCA was inundated with calls of tethered cattle that were left out in the blizzard conditions.

Despite the awful weather, Shelter staff drove to many of the animals to check their condition and we reported our concerns to the owners.

With tethering of cattle being a legal practice within Guernsey the Shelter was unable to take any action other than passing our concerns to the owners of the animals.

A rabbit is not just for Easter

Submitted by GSPCA on 17:14, 19th Mar, 2013 | 0

Every year as the weather warms and Easter arrives some parents think of rabbits as an a pet for their child.

The GSPCA this March want to send the message that a rabbit isn't just for Easter!!!

Over the last 18 months the GSPCA has had more stray and unwanted rabbits than the previous 5 years.

Many rabbits are bought on impulse and are housed in small hutches at the end of the garden with no exercise and the child often forgets the poor pet that is left for the parents to care for.
